Dress Circle Publishing will release The Untold Stories of Broadway, Volume 3, the latest in a series by acclaimed historian and producer Jennifer Ashley Tepper on Tuesday, November 15.
Have you ever wanted to spend time with Stephen Sondheim in the lobby during one of his shows? Did you know that Patti LuPone once had a Broadway ghostly encounter? Have you wondered what it was like to be in the landmark Broadway premiere of Angels in America?
From opening nights to closing nights. From secret passageways to ghostly encounters. From Broadway debuts to landmark productions. Score a front row seat to read hundreds of stories about the most important stages in the world, seen through the eyes of the producers, actors, stagehands, writers, musicians, company managers, dressers, designers, directors, ushers, and door men who bring The Great White Way to life each night. You’ll never look at Broadway the same way again.
This is the third book in a series that will tell the stories of all of the Broadway theaters. Volume 3 includes the Broadhurst, the Belasco, the Edison, the Lyric, the Majestic, the Schoenfeld, the St. James and the Walter Kerr: eight Broadway theaters that light up New York City.
(The Majestic Theatre is one of the theaters profiled in the 3rd volume of The Untold Stories of Broadway.)
The Untold Stories of Broadway is a multi-volume series that will examine 40 legendary Broadway theaters in total. Tepper, who is also a producer in her own right, interviewed over 200 theater professionals – actors, directors, producers, stagehands, designers, ushers, and others – to elicit their funniest and most compelling backstage experiences on The Great White Way.
The first two volumes have been lauded by the New York theater press. “I’m enjoying every chapter,” said Michael Riedel in The New York Post. NBC New York named it among its “Must-Reads for any Broadway fan” and raved “the book is filled with juicy anecdotes and inspiring tales.” According to Broadway World, the books “are must-haves for anyone who loves the rich history of musical theatre. Each chapter bursts with information, nostalgia, and good old-fashioned cheesy Broadway love.”
